Teen pregnancy is a pregnancy in female human-beings who are below the age of twenty years and being a teen parent it isn’t as great as it sounds. Teen pregnancy should be highly discouraged has it has effect on the teenage mother and the baby born. The teen mother may face complications such as premature labor, medical complication during the pregnancy period, at child birth or after child birth and are likely to drop out of school.
One cause for an early pregnancy for a teenager is family problems particularly a broken family. A teenager who has a broken family would be open to temptations because no one reminds him/her what is right thus he/she would involve in premarital sexual activities and would be having a child at an early age. Another possible reason for teenage pregnancy is financial problems. Financial problem would push a teenager to engage in prostitution which may lead to early pregnancy for her. Another reason for teenage pregnancy is having flirty or bad friends. If a teenager has friend who are considered as flirty or has friends who are not good then it would lead them into early pregnancy.
No one wants to become a parent when they are a teenager. Teenagers are not able to get a decent education, and some teens don’t know what they want to do with their lives. Teens don’t want to stay home and take care of a child. Yes, a baby is really cute and all, but teenagers really need to think about what they are getting themselves into. There are many of things that teenagers have to give up one is by having a child at a young age, when they are a child themselves. Teens should think about what they are doing before they accidently become teenage mother. And it is the responsibility not only of a parent but of other adults to assist a child so that she will not be pregnant early. Teachers or relatives can be the ones to guide the teenager so that she can withstand her problems and refrain from being pregnant at an early age.
Teen pregnancy is a long road. You will most likely end up walking that road by yourself most of the way. If you do get pregnant, take responsibility for your actions. Abstinence is key.
